The Instacart guide to half & half

A trip down the dairy aisle in the Instacart app for many consumers includes choosing half and half. But what exactly is half and half? It's a milk product that's half whole milk and half light cream. Most commonly used as a creamer in coffee, half and half can also be used in baking and cooking. The fat content is between whole milk, about 3.5% fat, and whipping cream, 30-33% fat. According to the FDA, half and half must contain between 10.5-18% milkfat. Basically, half and half is the perfect all-around creamer for any household. Watching your weight? You'll be happy to learn that half and half has fewer calories than heavy cream and some coffee creamers, and who doesn't like that?

FAQs about half and half

Unfortunately, no. While the keto diet is a low-carb, low-sugar, and high-fat diet, half and half doesn't exactly fit into the typical keto plan. Since the keto diet is one where you're eating more fat and less sugar, this is the reason why half and half isn't considered an approved keto item. Since half and half is half milk, which has about 12g of sugar per serving on average, and cream, the final product is lower in fat and contains sugar as opposed to the keto-friendly creamer of choice, heavy cream. Some people work around this by using only one or two tablespoons in their morning cup of coffee because they prefer the taste of half and half to cream.
